Topic Job Search for Foreign Students.
Speaker Abu Huda 
Abstract Search for a suitable job at the end of a student academic career is another daunting endeavor requiring no less effort and attitude. It is even more challenging for foreign students. Since they have to adopt a different culture environment and go thorough a different interview process than it is in their own country. In addition, a foreign student must also maintain the appropriate immigration status to be legally employed in USA. This presentation addresses the different issues involved with job search, employment authorization, interview process for a foreign student in USA.
